Albert powered by Oplift Extend is the hero behind our success. His collection of games in the e-learning app has proven to be incredibly successful for Virgin Media. In terms of engagement, 65% of employees play in their own time and 98% like or love playing Albert. In terms of performance, Virgin Media saw an increase of 7.4% in their knowledge rating from customers in just three months! Along with a 2.2% average increase in sales every single month! Average scores within the app have doubled over time as Albert encourages staff to engage with their products and processes and plugs gaps in their knowledge.
